Yahoo's news and community services have shut down in China only a month after the closure of its email service.

Yahoo China Closure

Visitors to the Yahoo China page are now redirected to a site run by Alibaba, the company that manage Yahoo's Chinese operation and services.

'Adjusting its Operations Strategy'

The farewell message that appears before the visitors are redirected, reads that "the firm are adjusting its operations strategy". The message also implies that its staff will be working on Alibaba content instead and thanks users for their support.

Social media services such as the Twitter-like platform offered by Weibo are hugely popular in China despite being openly censored. Yahoo has a significant stake in Alibaba, the business-to-business online retailer which has been licensed to run its Chinese services.
